Q1000 release/renew ip trick.

This applies to the Actiontec Q1000, not the Zyxel.

This is a little useless on Windows without command line versions of both wget or sleep. Anyway I made a batch file called "ipreset.cmd" with the following commands:

wget --user admin --password %1 --delete-after 192.168.0.1/togglewan.cmd?toggle=0
sleep 10
wget --user admin --password %1 --delete-after 192.168.0.1/togglewan.cmd?toggle=1

I can then type "ipreset.cmd password" to change my IP where password is the modem's password. I tested it on Windows XP but I'm sure it would work on Linux.

I'd call it a proof of concept reset script. This information could probably be used more efficiently. Literally opening "http://192.168.0.1/togglewan.cmd?toggle 0" disables the internet connection and "http://192.168.0.1/togglewan.cmd?toggle 1" enables it, just the same as if you pressed the corresponding Connect or Disconnect button on the status page. That's is where I got the URL's from, after all.

Nice trick, I did it from my Arch desktop. Nice way to reset those Megavideo/Rapidshare limits.
